Apple Fire in California sending ‘large area of smoke’ to Phoenix, hundreds of miles away

FOX: An explosive wildfire that’s caused thousands to evacuate from their homes in Southern California is sending smoke hundreds of miles to the east, giving residents in Arizona a bright red sun in the sky.

The Apple Fire has scorched more than 32 square miles of dry brush in the mountains east of Los Angeles, after exploding in size over the weekend.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) said as of Monday morning the blaze is only 5 percent contained after charring some 20,516 acres.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said Sunday that a “large area of smoke” from the blaze was drifting over western Arizona. more

  1. I live up in north west Phoenix so that would explain the frightening amount of smoke I keep seeing in the hemisphere.

    I kept looking up local wildfires and getting nothing, it was stressful. 😑
